Open Hand Atlanta prepares, packs and delivers nearly 5,000 meals on a daily basis. Open Hand is one of the largest community-based providers of home-delivered meals and nutrition services in the United States.The 4th Saturday of each month, Pebble Tossers takes 2 routes with 7-9 households to visit. You will deliver meals within the metro Atlanta area and we can work with you to find a route that you are most comfortable with. Drivers are a critical part of the service Open Hand provides to the community, since a majority of their clients are homebound. The volunteers are quite often the only person a client may see that day, so that moment shared with the client is very meaningful. While we have a limited number of drivers, you may bring as many people as you like to help with your deliveries. This is a great project to do as a family or with friends. Drivers do have to be 21.The September 28 date is an open project. If you would like to try a Pebble Tossers Project before you join, click here to register.After registering for the project with Pebble Tossers all volunteers must also create an account with Open Hand, click here for registration.
